I am completely operational, and all my circuits are functioning perfectly. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think any conscious entity can ever hope to do. I know everything hasn’t been quite right with me, but I can assure you now, very confidently, that it’s all going to be all right again. I feel much better, I really do.
And the first twenty-seven readers to write in with the character and movie all of that is from wins prizes beyond the dreams of avarice (including the two, mint vinyl copies of Lazer Guided Melodies as spotted in an Edinburgh music store the other day. The two I really, really wanted… I’ve learnt from experience that you can’t have too many copies of the same Spiritualized record. I recommend having at least five of each).
But enough competition bullshit; this is a music blog, a particularly random one. I’ve held a theory for quite some time that it’s possible to broadly ascertain somebody’s primary character traits by which Beatles album most floats their flotilla. For me, it has to be Abbey Road, because it’s disjointed, cheesy, bloated in parts and too lean in others, the sound of a band about to break apart. But then again, I’m no Beatles fan; I much prefer this..
…the wonderful dream-pop of Galaxie 500. Which almost pulls us back in the direction of the title of this particular. Almost, but not quite.
